Akira The Don And The Crimea Reunite!

Clever folks will remeber last year I did a remix of The Crimea‘s brillaint Loop A Loop, and myself and The Women played a show with them at Bush Hall. It was accoustic and it was grayte. ANYWAY! We’re doing it again, only this time it won’t be accoustic.

This will also likely be Mary Turner‘s last gig with The Women for a while, as she’s joined a girl group and is going to be a mega pop star! So I hope you can all come down and make it a great last night for her. And us.

The gig will be at the at Bush Hall in London on July 9th.

Anyway, that up there is a video of Davey Crimea Man playing a very lush and beautiful song called The Only Living Boy And Girl at London’s 12 Bar in March. There’s something of the Tom Waits about this song. It is fragile and gorgeous and makes my skin rush. It’s possibly going to be on their next album – a demo can be heard on their MySpace.

And if you haven’t got their current album, Secrets Of The Wishing Hour yet, you are foolish! It’s ace! And it’s free! No shit! You can get it right now here. As if you’ve got anything better to listen to this afternoon!

    The Secrets of the Witching hour is the only album that hasnt left my PsP (my ipod) since its release. I was wondering about them because news on them is hard to find. The whole thing from begining to end is brilliant.

    GEORGES CARLIN IS DEAD!! Am I the only one who: 1) only just found this out, and 2) cares?

    It is a sad day (well, two days ago)…

    :( George Carlin?!? NOOOoooo! That is just incredibly sad. I just read up on it. I don’t even want to write on the subject, just to say that he will be a great loss in a world thats overcrowded with mundane, asanine comedians. AK, you should root out that Carlin DVD I gave you a while back and watch it! A recent and wonderful concert. Damn man, I’m just plain sad now. Poo. đŸ˜¥

    Akira! I was sad enough to have had to miss you in Chester last week. But now you say you are supporting the fabulous Crimea on the 9 July? In London? I can’t get to that either! Waaaaaaaah …

    Can you not support them in Manchester next Friday? Please …

    Damn, I forgot all about Jay Smooth’s videos. I used to watch them all the time… I’ve got a good year or so of catching up to do.
